a little bit of success in the congress when i was there resolving local issues when it comes to land it. the way to do it is to work with lotus -- local leaders to resolve those issues. the congressman's approach was to write to the president of the united states to ask him with a stroke of his pen to create a national monument without resolving any of the local issues that are still there. i do not think washington should be doing that and overriding local control and resolution here. those extremes in olfaction approaches do not work in the long term to resolve land disputes. >> actually, i was writing to the president at the behest of the whole coalition of local leaders, from the mayor of las cruces to many of the local clubs. one of the broadest bipartisan groups of supporters i have ever seen. i think we should listen to them. there is an overwhelming support to a new national monument. i am very happy to join with the local support and help make that happen. >> by denying the controversy exists is not make it go away. these 30 cattle growers that have grazing permits on the west
